Default JUN13VSNMINI1~ Friday May 3~ Summer Fruit

Title: Summer Fruit
Hostess: Scraperwannabe (Misti)
Keyword: JUN
/Date: JUN13VSNMINI1
Date: Friday, May 3
Time: 5:00 PM EST



It's not a secret that I LOVE, LOVE summer. One of my favorite things about summer is the yummy fruit... pineapple, berries, mango, melons, peaches, plums, nectarines, grapes, kiwi, passion fruit, cherries... YUM-O... my mouth is watering just thinking of them!!!

My challenge is simply to make a project using some kind of summer fruit.


VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE: MAR13VSNMINI1
UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday, June 6.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. We have a special gallery for the Dog Days of Summer VSN. When you click on Member Galleries to access the drop-down list, either scroll to the very bottom of the list (or just hit the End key which will take you straight there), and upload to that gallery .
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, JUN13VSNMINI1 , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your creation is seen.

Oh Misti, you are a girl after my own heart. Fruit is my favorite thing about summer!
Not sure I will have time to play today, but I will get back to this for sure.

Hi Misti! Love your challenge and your card too! I plan on playing as soon as I can get down to my craft area. I have some things to do first. But am planning on playing tonight.

Bushel of Apples

Well, I'm behind as usual, but at least I'm playing along.

Not sure apples are what come to mind as a summer fruit and these certainly aren't summer colors, but my goal is to use as many new stamp sets as possible during this challenge and I just kept coming back to these colors.

Here is mine! I love friends that will be honest with you. My first attempt was a quick CAS card that although might not have been terrible wasn't so good. She agreed it wasn't one of my best but didn't think it was trash can worthy so I thought about posting it but instead I created a whole new card and I am more pleased with how this one turned out! Thanks Misti! Fun challenge!

Thank You with a cherry on top!
